A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Let’s go into Christ­mas on the right note, with a free pod­cast of Charles Dick­en’s A Christ­mas Car­ol. (Find it here on iTunes.) Writ­ten in 1843, Dick­en’s tale remains one of the most pop­u­lar Christ­mas sto­ries of all time. It gave us the indeli­ble char­ac­ters of Ebenez­er Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the Ghosts of Christ­mas Past, Present, and Future. And it invent­ed the notion of “christ­mas spir­it.” This pod­cast is rather well read. If you’d like to read along with the actu­al text, you can get a free etext here, cour­tesy of Project Guten­berg.

Also, you can find oth­er free Christ­mas sto­ries at Lib­rivox. On this page, you can stream mp3s of many dif­fer­ent hol­i­day tales.
